Great Cthulhu

Maarten Verhoeven is no stranger to these pages.  His latest project, this wonderful Cthulhu plaque, demonstrates why.  He has a real gift for creating digital sculpts that translate into fantastic physical castings.

 I love the rusted patina on this faux iron Cthulhu idol from Spider Concept Art.

Mask of the Shaman

This fantastic shaman's mask and pectoral comes to us from Ukrainian artist Ordacraft.  Incredible craftsmanship with layer after layer of glorious textural elements.  Click through to check out their full gallery of primitive-style LARP costume accessories.

Samhain Propworks brings us this excellent tutorial on creating a vintage plunger-style detonator.  Absolutely perfect for a pulp or classic-era Mythos LARP.  Be sure to check out their look at making prop dynamite sticks.

If you like the video I would strongly suggest giving the channel a follow.  Despite the solid content they're really not getting the views and subscriber numbers they deserve.

Jason McKittrick of the Cryptocurium returns to our pages with a pair of new props- the Tablet of the Black Pharaoh and the Yuggoth Scarab.  I love how he's re-imagined the traditional Egyptian scarab as a depiction of a Mi-Go.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

I love the sculpt for this Cthulhu mirror from Screamers Costumes.  It's a cool paintjob as well, but I think it would look even better if the faux ver di gris treatment was kicked up a bit.

Hail to the King

This nicely done take on the King in Yellow comes to us from Golden Brush Studio.  It's been interesting to watch how depictions of the King have increasingly incorporated Horned God and Wendigo imagery over the last few years.  My gut feeling is it's the result of the first season of True Detective and a touch of Hannibal

Cthulhu in Wood

 This wooden Cthulhu idol, hand carved from oak, comes to us from Secret Wood Story.

Cthulhu Fhtagn! Camargo Edition.

I love artists that have a new take on the traditional Cthulhu idol, and this piece from Alberto Camargo definitely qualifies.

Great Cthulhu

We've featured hundreds of Cthulhu idols over the years.  This piece from El Goblin Paraguay is one of the very, very few that feature an asymmetrical sculpt.

Necromancer's Mask

Dolen Carag returns to our pages with this creepy Necromancer's Mask, carved from actual human bone.

Great Cthulhu

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  What the Mythos really needs is a concerted effort to reach out to more mainstream consumers.  We need more work like this delightful Cthulhu figurine from Nozomi if we really want wider acceptance.  The whole cosmic horror thing will never reach beyond a tiny niche audience.
